Design of WSN based Water Quality Monitoring System in a Mining District
Abstract: Mineral resources are non-renewable asserts and India is blessed with abundant mineral resources including metallic minerals, nonmetallic minerals, fuels etc. The liberalized policy of government of India attracted number of mining companies from India and abroad and started mining of these resources at various places of the Nation. This resulted a severe environmental impact on various sub environments including surface water and groundwater. In this paper it is proposed the conceptual model of design and implementation of wireless sensor network (WSN) using ZigBee Protocol for continuous monitoring of pollution levels in water resources due to mining activity of a given region using a multiple sensor system. The details of the model, the hardware system the networking application, advantages are presented. It is established that, the wireless sensor network system can be effectively implemented to monitor quality of water resources in a mining district.
